World Meteorological Organisation Centennial Observing Station Award
Armagh Observatory and Planetarium was recently awarded a Centennial Observing Station status by the World Meteorological Organisation. We were:
‘Recognized as a long-term observing station by the World Meteorlogical Organisation in June 2018 for more than 100 years of meteorological observations.’
The award ceremony took place in December 2018 at the Observatory and was accompanied by a Climate Panel (featuring representatives from the Met Office and Met Éireann) at the Planetarium.
The panel discussed the history of weather readings, the current state of climate science, and focused on the likely effects of climate change in the future. The event was attended by members of the public as well as professionals in the field.
